    Default W/C KH Burns (97 Sqn) crew photo

    Please can anybody tell me if a photo is known to have survived of the crew of the "A" Flight Commander commander 97 Sqn W/C Burns DSO DFC* and his crew before they were shot down on the night of 31 Aug 43.

    Thanks

    I hope you can come up with the pictures you want Pete. If you do I trust you will share them with the site I quoted previously.

    My father was with "B Flight" of 97 Squadron during the time W/C Burns was with A Flight 97 Squadron. Out of interest I post below the trips they made to the same target.
